Pacific Songwriting Camp


A camp for music lovers: whether you want to explore songwriting for the first time or are a seasoned singer-songwritier, come immerse yourself in all aspects of the songwriting craft. Students and instructors make music together and learn together. This year’s teachers and coaches include: Antsy McClain, Rachel Garlin, Michael McNevin, Mare Wakefield & Nomad, Stan Dewitt, Severin Browne, Dale LaDuke, Mark Dann and Rebecca Troon.

The camp includes all classes and activities plus four nights lodging in our straw-bale constructed cabins with 11 delicious meals. Attend our many workshops and classes to focus on your musical, lyrical and performance skills or sit and write under a tree. Perform at night at “Coffeehouse” in front of a safe and supportive audience, and join in on the late-night song circles.

The camp is modeled after “SummerSongs”, an intimate twice a year songwriting camp, which has spawned countless songs and friendships. Inspired by beloved friend, singer-songwriter and teacher Penny Nichols, PSC follow in her footsteps, creating community through music and song.
